Professor Slocum has published extensively in numerous refereed outlets, including Cartography and Geographic Information Science,  Cartographica, Journal of Geography, Annals of the Association of American Geographers, The Professional Geographer, and The British Cartographic Journal. He has authored the books Thematic Cartography and Visualization (Prentice-Hall, 1999)  and Thematic Cartography and Geographic Visualization (Pearson Education, Inc., 2005) . From 1999  to 2002 , he served as editor of Cartography and Geographic Information Science. He has been involved in numerous grants, including two from the National Science Foundation, and has received two Teacher Appreciation awards from the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) at the University of Kansas.  From 2003 to the present, he has served as Chair of the Department of Geography at the University of Kansas.

Fritz Kessler is currently an Associate Professor at Frostburg State University (FSU) located in Frostburg, MD and has been teaching a variety of geography courses since the fall of 1999. Professor Kessler’s cartographic background has evolved through a variety of cartographic related positions. He began his career in cartography while working in Ohio University’s Cartographic Center as an undergraduate student. After graduating from Ohio University in 1988 with a B.S. in Geography, he worked for the USGS Water Resource Division in Towson, MD as a Cartographic Technician. After receiving his M.S. from Penn State in 1991, he joined Intergraph as a Systems Analyst in Huntsville, AL. Desirous to return to production cartography, he took a position with R. R. Donnelley and Sons as a Cartographer. Although a fascinating experience, he chose to return to pursue his Ph.D. at the University of Kansas, during which time he worked for the Kansas State Geological Survey as a GIS Technician and as a Map Librarian at the T. R. Smith Map Library.
In his ninth year of teaching at FSU, Fritz also holds a joint appointment through Penn State where he teaches and online course on map projections, datums, and coordinate systems in the Master of Geographic Information Systems degree program.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Book Dec 2 2012
By pat
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had purchased this book for my cartography class. It does not engage the reader at all and has very contradicting map displays. leaving you on the fence on many cartographic standards and principles, also its extremely overpriced for an uninteresting book with a low use of colour, considering colour is a main aspect of creating a map.....

By 0xyjen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This was part of my Intro to Cartography class and it is a very detailed and comprehensive cartography Bible and a must own: Lots of photos, detailed concepts unraveled, a glossary for mapping concepts and theory.
4.0 out of 5 stars Review Oct. 2 2013
By Tanner zach - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It is a very informative text. IT can get dry at times and the black and white print makes it difficult to cover multiple chapters at a time. It is a good text for anybody who wants to understand how to best present a map to the selected audience. It also explains how to change things to better suit different audiences
